    mardon85 got a reaction from BiG StroOnZ in Pint sized heavy weight (Ncase M1 build)   
    Update.
    I wasn't 100% happy with the 2080Ti temps so i've made some updates:
    I managed to source a 49mm deep radiator which was essentially the same in all other aspects as the Corsair H55.
    Installed a fan controller for the 92 and 120mm redux fans for the GPU incoming air and the NF-A12x15 extract below the GPU block. I'm hoping the air will be drawn over the card then exhausted out.
    Swapped out the fans for CPU & GPU fans for noctua nf-a12x25  -TIP.. Don't bother with any other fan. These are so much quieter than the redux fans. Even at 100% they're not that loud.
     
    Very happy with the results 52C in metro and 45C in COD Warzone.

    I've always loved small form factor cases over bling and led. The build below is my dream build. Having discovered £1 listings on ebay and getting some really good prices for my old hardware I set about building this mini beast. It had to be small, quiet and pack a punch. 
    Fitting the dual AIO's in was a challenge but once the orientation is right it goes in nicely. The CPU AIO  radiator is actually sitting over the PSU and the GPU radiator sits over the CPU block. I found this to be the best orientation to avoid kinks. 
    I only use the PC for gaming and Revit which is primarily single threaded so figured a cooler 9700k would be a better fit for the small form factor than a furnace 9900k.

    All in all I'm over the moon with it. Just tempted to swap out to the better noctua fans on the rads.

    mardon85 got a reaction from Bombastinator in 2080ti Temps and Max Clocks - HOW?   
    I agree. But I like benchmarking when I get new hardware it's half the fun. 
    I then settle on a sensible compromise between voltage, heat and performance.

    well this time its about ordering custom cables if needed.
    as seen here
     
    its not heat over time, its more about sudden inrush of current which burns the connector. at least when it comes to your PSU

    2080ti requires some power. I'd use 2 seperate cables unless PSU is really high end.

    Yes its the new Samsung DDR6. That's an average overclock people are getting more. I'd love to see what a golden chip could do on a 130% power limit BIOS.

    It's only a problem with 3DMark then, I wouldn't worry.
